Así es... La boccia

La boccia, cuyos orígenes se remontan a la Grecia Clásica, es una compleja combinación de táctica y habilidad. Se practica de forma individual, por parejas o equipos, sobre una pista rectangular en la que los jugadores tratan de lanzar sus bolas lo más cerca posible de la pelota blanca que sirve de objetivo, a la vez que intentan alejar las de sus rivales, en un ejercicio continuo de tensión y precisión.

Cada jugador, pareja o equipo dispone de seis bolas en cada manga y gana aquel cuya bola termine más cerca de la blanca. Además, recibirá un punto extra por cada bola adicional que haya conseguido acercar a la blanca por delante de la primera del contrario. Las competiciones individuales y por parejas constan de cuatro mangas, mientras que las de equipos se componen de seis.

El deporte de la boccia lo practican personas en silla de ruedas que tienen parálisis cerebral o discapacidad física severa, y que se colocan en uno de los extremos del campo, desde donde lanzan las bolas. La competición se estructura por clases de discapacidad: la BC1 corresponde a deportistas que lanzan con manos o pies y precisan ayuda de un asistente; los de la BC2 son aquéllos que pueden lanzar sin ayuda; la BC3 precisa asistencia y realiza los lanzamientos a través de una canaleta; todos ellos tienen parálisis cerebral. La categoría BC4 engloba a los deportistas con discapacidad física grave.

Este deporte forma parte del programa paralímpico desde los Juegos de Nueva York 1984. En la actualidad, se practica en más de 50 países de todo el mundo y consta de siete eventos con medalla (las cuatro competiciones individuales para cada clase, las de parejas BC3 y BC4, más la de quipos BC1/BC2). Todas ellas son mixtas.

Sport A-Z: Boccia

Boccia was practiced for many years as a leisure activity until it was introduced at the New York 1984 Paralympic Games as a competitive sport.

It is practiced in more than 50 countries by those with cerebral palsy or related neurological conditions involving a wheelchair.

All events are mixed gender and feature individual, pair and team competitions.

The game consists of four rounds in individuals and pairs competitions and of six rounds in the team competition. It is played on a hard surface, and the goal is to throw the game balls so that they land as close as possible to a special target ball, which is called the jack.

At the London 2012 Games, 104 athletes competed in seven medal events.

La Boccia : A la découverte de la “pétanque des paralympiques”

JEUX PARALYMPIQUES RIO 2016 - LA BOCCIA. Ce sport d’origine gréco romaine peut effectivement être comparé à la pétanque. 2 équipes s’affrontent. L’une possédant des boules bleues et l’autre rouges. Chaque boule peut être lancée avec le main, le pied ou à l’aide d’un appareil. L’objectif étant de se rapprocher le plus possible de la boule blanche qui fait office de but. La boccia peut se pratiquer individuellement ou par équipe. Retrouvez quelques images de ce sport étonnant sur Francetvsport.fr
